On this episode of the podcast, I am joined by guest co-host Dr. Jeff Ploegstra (professor of biology). Together we interview Dr. Josh Reeves, Director of the Samford Center for Science and Religion at Samford University, and author of the book Redeeming Expertise, Scientific Trust and the Future of the Church (Baylor, 2021). Among the topics we discuss:
- How to make sense of the crisis of expertise in which we find ourselves – is there a way to redeem expertise?
- Distinguishing three forms of expertise, and placing scientific expertise in perspective
- How knowledge is always a communal project, requiring us to trust others and to cultivate communities of critical thinking.
- On the possibilities and limitations of science, what science does well and what it can’t do
